This week the Vita sold over 30k in Japan, a very significant rise in sales

So it jumped from horrible to underwhelming. What came out in Japan to cause the spike?

Hopeful that devs will stop releasing psp games now that they know people will buy the Vita version instead of the psp one.

Very good point. The Vita needed an "experiment" like this to open some eyes. Maybe now they'll take some risks.

Or maybe we'll just get more games developed for PSP / Vita.

If this proves anything, its that the Vita needs more Monster Hunter clones.

Skeptical. Is this a temporary spike or a continuing trend? Will it have any long-term effects on the future of the Vita? I highly doubt it.


It's a temporary spike because a game came out that people wanted to play.

Imagine, if you will, a point in time when this happens on a regular basis.


And? What good will imagining do? Since it's apparently a temporary spike, it's nothing to get excited about.

It's because of the Toukiden bundle/game release, it's a good thing.


Yeah, it's good news, it's proof that all Vita needs is a little faith from developers.


And a $50 price drop.
Cheaper memory wouldn't hurt either.
